"To fall in love with God is the greatest romance; to seek Him, the greatest adventure; to find Him, the greatest achievement."

Augustine (via onfireforgod)

"He who does not see the vanity of the world is himself very vain. Indeed who do not see it but youths who are absorbed in fame, diversion, and the thought of the future? But take away diversion, and you will see them dried up with weariness. They feel then their nothingness without knowing it; for it is indeed to be unhappy to be in insufferable sadness as soon as we are reduced to thinking of self, and have no diversion."

Blaise Pascal - “Pensée 164”, Pascal’s Pensées

"How useless is painting, which attracts admiration by the resemblance of things, the originals of which we do not admire!"

Blaise Pascal - “Pensée 134”, Pascal’s Pensées

"

Human life is thus only a perpetual illusion; men deceive and flatter each other. No one speaks of us in our presence as he does of us in our absence. Human society is founded on mutual deceit; few friendships would endure if each knew what his friend said of him in his absence, although he then spoke in sincerity and without passion.

Man is then only disguise, falsehood, and hypocrisy, both in himself and in regard to others. He does not wish any one to tell him the truth; he avoids telling it to others, and all these dispositions, so removed from justice and reason, have a natural root in his heart.

"

Blaise Pascal - “Pensée 100”, Pascal’s Pensées

"Forgiveness does not mean condoning or justifying any misdeeds. It’s not rejoining with the offender. It simply means giving up your desire for revenge and letting go of the expectation that s/he will make amends. It’s untying the knots that keep you emotionally entwined and prevent you from healing. It’s a conscious and deliberate decision, without which a person cannot fully heal."

"Why are we embarrassed by silence? What comfort do we find in all the noise?"

Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie  (via iheartloons)

"Can I say something to young ladies here? I’m trying to pick my words carefully here. Your husband, whoever he is, single ladies, will have an unbelievable amount of influence over your sons and daughters in regards to spiritual things. If you want your children to love Jesus deeply, hold out for a man that is Godly. And let me tell you this: I am well aware that Godly men are rare. Lots of neat Christian boys, not a lot of Godly men. And we’re working our tails off for you to try to develop some into that. But don’t settle, because it’s better that you be lonely now than you be married and lonely later. Are you tracking with me? It is better that you be lonely now than for you to get married to a man that will teach your kids everything but the way of Jesus."
